AGM 2019

If you couldn’t make it down to the park for the AGM in January you can catch up on ‘you tube’ here!

AGM Video Footage – 29 January 2019

We’d like to thank those who were able to attend.  Your support of the park is much appreciated. It was a great evening with both the formalities of an AGM and a lot of community conversation together with some cheese and wine.

Interest in the project is welcomed and if you would like to get more involved we are always seeking new Trustees and Volunteers. Two new local residents have joined the trustee board following the AGM. We would like to welcome Carmel & Simon on board.

Like the idea of being a trustee but not sure what it involves? CLICK HERE for more information.

We’ll be introducing you to our trustees over the coming year in our newsletter. Watch this space..

DP World donate free office space to Hardie Park

We’d like to say thank you publicly to DP World for providing Hardie Park with some much needed FREE office space for all that goes on behind the scenes. The business side of things at the park was operating from a container on site until recently so this generous offer from the local port has been well received. We are looking forward to setting up our office at the port in the new year. We will benefit from the space for an amazing three year period!.
